I've blogged before about the value of social media in genealogy research. I belong
to a number of genealogy Groups and Pages on Facebook, and made a list of them tonight.

As you can see, there's quite a few of them, and I suspect I've left some more off the list. 
I don't check each one every day, and sometimes a few weeks will go by between my visits.
I tend to check in on certain of the Groups devoted to the places my ancestors lived and
see if I can help someone out with questions concerning families I have in my database.
I've also made cousin contacts with fellow Group members.

If you haven't explored what Facebook has that could help you with you genealogy research,
it's worth a few minutes of your time to do so.
